DINOSAURS! Of Victorian London

23 June, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Crystal Palace dinosaur models were unveiled in 1854 and took the world by storm starting the original Dinomania. These beastly models were the first anyone had ever seen of dinosaurs and left a lasting impression. Join historian of science and Strange Creatures co-curator Professor Joe Cain as he shares how these models, still on display today, were important in shaping the public’s perceptions of dinosaurs. This event is followed by free drinks reception and a private view of the Strange Creatures exhibition.
